Agency starts to pare down list

Nine applicants for the top spot in Nevada County’s Community Development Agency will spend Aug. 31 in a day-long interview, said Susan Kadera, a senior personnel analyst. Kadera said more than 20 people applied for the position.

Kadera said she expects a director to begin work in September or October.

For the past three months, Randy Wilson has been serving as the interim planning director. In May, former Community Development Director Jess Montoya was promoted to lead the Human Services Agency.

Three community development directors have served since 1997, Kadera said.

The incoming director will be responsible for leading the agency during a period of continued county growth. In addition, the director will need to find a leader of the county’s Planning Department. Former Planning Director Mark Tomich resigned in April.
